Pia Fraus – In Solarium PREORDER LP mp3  $15.98

PREORDER SHIPPING JULY 15, 2016! Limited edition pressing (444 hand-numbered copies) of Pia Fraus' 2002 masterpiece album In Solarium. Since its release, the album is considered an international opening of the Estonian shoegaze scene. In Solarium consciously announced the imaginary marriage of My Bloody Valentine and Stereolab. It was a time when shoegaze had been somewhat sidelined in Europe, coming out of nowhere, Pia Fraus turned out an essential dose for shoegaze addicts all over the world, with their nearly-inaudible lyrics and pop melodies underneath massive guitar layers.

Pia Fraus – After Summer LP mp3  $19.98

1st-time vinyl edition of "After Summer", the 4th (and final, to-date) album from Estonian shoegazers Pia Fraus. The 2008 album was produced by Scottish indie legend Norman Blake, the leader of Teenage Fanclub, and Pia Fraus' long time musical inspiration. An alternate version of one of the album's tracks, 'Mute the Birds', made its way onto a split 7" with famed electronic shoegaze master and longtime Pia Fraus fan Ulrich Schnauss. Reviews of the band's earlier albums suggest comparisons to My Bloody valentine, but After Summer saw parallels drawn to Stereolab instead. "Pia Fraus glows beauty. And they glow clearer and clearer." -- Eesti Ekspress.

Pia Fraus – Nature Heart Software LP mp3  $19.98

Limited edition (444 copies) remastered vinyl reissue of Estonian shogaze forefathers' Pia Fraus legendary album "Nature Heart Software", celebrating its 10th anniversary. Upon initial release, the album was described as explorative, unconventionally experimental in this genre, hovering somewhere in the lightness of dreampop and the darker sides. Thus, NHS may be found at the honourable 27th place in the 'Sounds Better With Reverb' blog "Best Shoegaze Albums" list.

Daysleepers – Drowned In A Sea of Sound CD mp3  $12.00

At long last, a limited-edition second pressing of one of Clairecords' most successful and revered releases - the debut album from Buffalo, NY-area dreampop heroes The Daysleepers. Imagine the sounds of the Cure, Cocteau Twins, The Chameleons and Slowdive rolled into one. These 10 tracks touch on a wide variety of sounds and emotions ranging from spacey ethereal drones to blissful up-tempo dreampop beauty. This 2nd pressing is limited to 500 copies, and it is likely that this will be the last pressing of this album on CD.

Electro Group – Cassingle One CASS $4.98

Out of nowhere comes a limited edition cassette single from California's noise pop hermits, Electro Group! This cassingle, limited to only 100 copies, collects a couple tracks that have only previously been available as digital downloads, and a couple of previously unreleased tracks. Neither a radical departure from, or strict adherence to their 2000s output, these four tracks continue a tradition of taking a sweet melody, and then slathering it with fuzz. Get a copy while it lasts! Includes a code for a digital download.

Sciflyer – Energizer EP CD $7.99

Just after the release of Sciflyer's long-delayed "They Only Believe in The Moon" last year, guitarist Steve Kennedy unearther another "lost" single, Energizer, a song they had worked on intensely during the early 2000s but inexplicably abandoned. Also found was an incredibly rockin' version of You're From The Ocean with an entirely different set of lyrics and melodic structure than the version on their Clairecords debut, Fair Weather Karma (2003). To these we've added: a remake from the 'Moon Sessions'; a smoking hot live Sin City rendition of their space-surf hit, Beyond The Event Horizon; and for the finale, Time Bomb, a brooding and wordy song they deleted from The Age of Lovely Intimate Things at the last minute back in 2005. Kennedy refers to the release as "a small collection miscellaneous debris recovered from the wreckage". Oddly, this seemingly random hodge-podge of previously unreleased songs that spans their mid-2000's career might just be Sciflyer's most exciting release to date!

Airiel – Winks and Kisses 180g 3xLP mp3  $42.98

Clairecords and Shelflife Records have partnered to bring you at long last the vinyl edition of Airiel's Winks and Kisses. This four EP collection is housed in a deluxe triple gatefold sleeve with three 180 gram LPs, each in a unique color -- electric blue, cloudy clear and black -- and limited to just 500 copies world-wide. Formed in 1997, Airiel are known for crafting mesmerizing cascades of guitar-driven noise evocative of the Cocteau Twins and the Pale Saints. Pitchfork have called them "... a sonic spinning of cotton candy," their sound is as sweet as it is transportive and consuming, spiriting the listener away in a blur of aural flux and smash. This vinyl reissue also includes 3 exclusive remixes!

Various Artists – Two Blue Waters LP $11.98

15 local bands and artists from St. Augustine, Florida -- limited to 500 copies. All tracks here are exclusively on vinyl. This is a celebration of the local scene in our small town by the sea. St. Augustine is brimming with talented musicians, and it seem ridiculous to not share all of the fantastic music with the rest of the world. The 15 artists represented here are but a small snippet of the myriad artists in our town. Each of them has had a direct impact on our shop and label since we relocated here 2 years ago. Folk, indie rock, singer-songwriter, hardcore, jazz and punk are just a few of the genres included on this LP. Although that is an incredibly-varied variety, we feel the LP as a whole is a great, cohesive listen.

Sciflyer – They Only Believe in the Moon CD $12.00

After a successful SXSW debut in 2006, SCIFLYER began recording tracks for the album that was to be their magnum opus. The initial recordings were wrapped up by early 2007 and were ready to be mixed down for release, only to be dropped due to personal issues. Now, after 7 years of orbiting lost in space, this once-abandoned album is finally returning to Earth. Recorded in a professional 24-track analog studio for the entire project, & featuring ex-members of LSD & THE SEARCH FOR GOD and ASTRAL.

Brother Kite, The – Model Rocket CD $12.00

With their latest record, TBK sought to capture how they sound as a live band. The product, recorded in the band?s new Providence mill space studio, is the punchy and energetic 4th album, Model Rocket. In many ways, the album is a stark departure from The Brother Kite?s previous records - gone are the heady song structures, choirs of overdubbed voices, and thickly reverberated instrumentation. Yet what remains is equally as endearing, never abandoning what makes TBK a great rock band: buoyant melodies composed of heart-on-your-sleeve lyrics, careening over driving bass and drums, and fueled by their signature guitar sound.
